YSU won in the Fargo Dome 27-24 in 2011. Since then they have played several tight games including an OT loss. They play annually since they are in the same conference.
I was expecting 2002 Miami to be #1 on the list since they were supposed to easily beat the Buckeyes. Not only were they not #1 but they didn't even make the top 25. That alone discredited the list in my opinion.
I would have put the 1969 Buckeyes very high on that list also. They were crushing everyone until game 9.
In the last nine years NDSU hasn't lost to an FBS team, beating five of them including Iowa and Minnesota.
They have lost to SDSU (twice), South Dakota, Montana, Northern Iowa, Indiana State, YSU, and James Madison (playoffs) from the FCS.
The delusion is strong in this post from that OP.

OSU has had 10 with much better prospects while Michigan has had 8 with much fewer elite prospects. So I could technically argue that Michigan is perhaps better at developing DL talent.
Link to a civil war on MGoBlog.
I haven't looked at MGoBlog to see if this article is mentioned. It is disgusting.
Great news on a Sunday afternoon of watching golf.
I spent the duration of the Vietnam War in high school, college, and then the US Army Reserve in lieu of getting drafted. Plus, Woody didn't teach at my school although my humanities electives were all war classes. We only had four humanities classes in four years.
I would love to have taken a military history class from him.
That's a good team with either current NFL guys or including new draftees. I bet TTUN would need to borrow some guys from MSU to have enough for a full team.
I would be willing to learn more about soccer.
When it comes to why the US men and women are so different in where they stand in the world, two issues - follow the money and the US university system. When I say money, I am not talking about the US men vs. women. I am talking about how national soccer federations allocate money to the teams. In some countries, the women get between zero and a little. The men get the money for development with little to the women. The other big difference is the development of players. Most of the world have academies at professional clubs that scoop up young players, generally male. One reason that France is becoming competitive to the USA is that their major men's teams have parallel women's teams and they now have academies for the women. This hasn't been an issue in the USA for the women because of high school and university teams provide this development. The US universities are also a factor for Canada's competitiveness since lots of the Canadian national team ladies played on scholarship in the US.
You could expand this by broadening the topic. For example, there is a South African track athlete who was banned for awhile because she had too much testosterone, not from doping but from her birth. I believe that she was eventually allowed to compete but she had to do anti-doping basically to meet the limits. There was also a pro tennis player in the 1970s, Renee Richards, who had sex reassignment surgery and after a lot of controversy was allow to compete against the women.
Since academics is a high priority for Egbuka, that is in the Buckeyes' favor as they are the highest ranked academic school among the four. Washington is slightly behind OSU but the other two are not even close to the same zip code.
The family moved from Hawaii to Alabama. The younger brother played his last year of high school in Bama.
Clearly they would be attorneys for the plaintiffs.l
There are significant financial issues at colleges and universities that are already impacting athletics. Two examples in Ohio. Urbana University near Columbus is closing it doors and just released all athletes on 19 men and women's teams to look elsewhere. They are D2. The University of Akron is going to eliminate roughly half of its 11 schools and cut several sports. These are just two schools of which I am aware. I am sure that there are many more throughout the country.
A major financial hit to the the bigger schools is a sharp reduction in foreign students who usually pay sticker price for school in the USA. This is a result of stricter visa rules, cross border travel restrictions independent of visas, and folks deciding not to go so far to school based various personal reasons. This could impact sports teams at schools that have to subsidize athletics.
This virus appears to be driving a Darwinian process that is going to cull the weaker universities, weaker programs within universities, and sports programs that are not self supporting. And this is already happening without knowing whether or not there will be another spike in cases in the fall.
My hope is watch football in the fall but I am not confident. I will watch with interest to see what happens with finishing the NBA and NHL seasons and starting the MLB season. Those events will provide a big clue as to what happens with NCAA and NFL football.
The only thing I am certain about is that this fall is going to play out like a movie with numerous plot twists. There is far more that we don't know than what we do know. The biggest unknown is whether or not there is another spike in the fall. A big spike in the fall would probably be a death knell even for the SEC.
There are no PAC12 schools in the Cal State system. UCLA and Cal are in the University of California system. Two separate organizations.
I attended that game in 1986 game against Alabama. It was a snoozer of a game as the defenses dominated and IIRC it was no where near a full house in NJ. It was the dullest game I have ever attended that went to the wire.
It seems that the owner's had an agreement after spring training was suspended to pay the players the ratio of games played. The owners want to change the deal, probably because they will be playing without fans and that knocks out from 40-50% of the income depending upon the team.
The most boring Buckeye game that I have seen live was the Kickoff Classic in 1986 against Alabama at the Meadowlands in NJ. No energy from the crowd in a 16-10 game in which Alabama came from behind. I didn't consider total blowouts against overmatched opponents.
That Hail Mary by Flutie was the difference maker in keeping the Buckeyes from having 8 Heisman trophies and the sole lead.
